Wow, I envy your richness of culture! You truly ARE on top of the box!Culture and history and language truly are fascinating topics to think about. I'm Persian, living in America, and I feel "entitled" to both histories. I cannot imagine the confluence of emotions you go through given your cultural history and places you have lived.I know what you mean about running too. I used to notice it more when I had started, but nowadays it's a regular part of my "self-help" ways.
@Yasmin:you're persian living in the states, wow thats great. I am meeting a lot of people that have a mixed background or live abroad thats just perfect, I believe that this is the way to get over all the prejudice and conflicts between people. thanks for the post by the way.
